Citi reported that it was lowering its estimates on Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ: WFM).

Badishkanian lowered the target price to $41.00 from $55.00 and stated, "Given updated guidance and trends (including weaker than expected SSS and reduced EPS guidance), we lower our FY14-16 EPS ests by 9c, 19c, and 30c each, respectively. Lowering tgt px by $14 to reflect our lower EPS forecast and a lower target multiple."
